Elsewhere, Scott Deasy nailed a 76th-minute penalty to give Lansdowne a 16-16 draw with Garryowen at Dooradoyle, while Young Munster secured a 14-11 win away to misfiring Old Belvedere, where Gearoid Evans' second-half penalty proved decisive.
Leaders UCD hit Galwegians with 20 unanswered points as they gained a 33-15 victory at the Belfield Bowl. The bonus point leaves Noel McNamara's youngsters five points clear of Clontarf.
In Division 1B, Ballymena suffered a significant setback in the race for promotion as they went down 15-12 to leaders St Mary's College, whose hooker Hugo Kean struck for the winning try following an injury-time maul.
